And I'd never ride with the front of my saddle two inches lower than the back.

:shock:

As an old school MTB'er from 88-95, with a stint as a runner from the late 1990s until 2 years ago, and now being a Roadie just rekindling an interest in retro MTBs.....

A little advice please. -- Would these be measured at 45cm from c-to-c at the very ends of the bar tubes? :?

Help!!!

I bought the bars and stem from Harris Cyclery as someone linked up earlier in the thread, but not being experienced in this --- or even very good at puzzles! :wink: , I'm wondering how best to overcome this stem around a tight curve issue. Is this something where you just grease it an whack it with a hammer, or is this in fact an undoable combination?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
